Making Ground Breaking Ground, showcases 25 years of exploration into using basketry materials and techniques to create sculpture, installation, video and printmaking. The exhibition is a survey of intercultural artist Fiona Gavino’s practice that sees her working the traditional into the contemporary as she seeks to push the boundaries of what basketry can physically do or say.

Featured in the exhibition will be some of the artist’s early sculptural works with her signature bifurcated surfaces that offer a sense of fluidity and movement in the static. A 12 metre (entirely) hand woven suspended installation, an interactive artwork, works on paper and a body of video works made during the artist’s time with the Pixels+Fibre Project.

This exhibition opens on Friday 25 August at 6pm to 9pm and runs from 26 August to 10 September.
